About Hexawise

Our passionate team is based in Durham, North Carolina, close to Research Triangle Park.

We created Hexawise to help software testers achieve more coverage in fewer tests. Hexawise Inc. does one thing and we do it well; we deliver an easy-to-use test case generator that lets users test smarter, not harder. At Hexawise, we consider ourselves not so much a Software as a Service provider as we are a Software and a Service provider.

Launched in 2009, the early work of Hexawise was literally performed in a garage. Since leaving our garage, we’ve quickly gained acceptance and broad usage at many Fortune 500 firms.

Today, Hexawise is in use at:

  • 3 of the 5 largest IT consulting firms in the world (including more than 12,000 Hexawise users at a single global IT and consulting firm)
  • 2 of the 3 largest mutual fund companies in the world
  • 8 of the 25 largest banks in the world
  • The second largest life insurance company in the U.S.
  • 5 of the 13 largest property & casualty insurance companies in the U.S.
  • The largest software as a service company in the world

Our Leadership Team

Justin Hunter

CEO, Founder

Before founding Hexawise in 2009, Justin worked at Accenture where he led several firm-wide initiatives. He spearheaded the adoption of pair-wise test design approaches that doubled tester productivity. Justin received a CEO award for the initiative’s success.

Passionate about spreading awareness of software test design techniques, Justin has taught test design methods to software testers on 6 continents. He is a frequent speaker at conferences and makes it a priority to listen to testers and understand their challenges.

By making it easy for software testers to design efficient and effective software tests, Justin is following in his father's footsteps. Justin's father, Dr. William G. Hunter, was a leading Design of Experiments expert who worked in many industries designing experiments that were scientifically-optimized to maximize the amount of actionable information revealed in each experiment.

Justin graduated from Georgetown University (Phi Beta Kappa, Magna Cum Laude) and earned a JD/MBA from the University of Virginia.
